  4. Introduction to PhotoShop • RGB Color Space • (Red, Green, Blue)Essentially your computer has a Palette that holds a swatch or blob of red paint, green paint, and blue paint. By mixing these colors together, other colors are created. N M Swygert

  5. Introduction to PhotoShop • Image Resolution • Resolution in digital imagery refers to pixels per inch (ppi) or density, similar to how many square feet a particular room in a house might have. N M Swygert

  6. Introduction to PhotoShop • Dimensions • The amount of pixels contained in the width and height of an image is referred to as an image’s dimensions. N M Swygert

  7. Introduction to PhotoShop • Dimensions • The amount of pixels contained in the width and height of an image is referred to as an image’s dimensions. Screen Dimensions Dimensions in Browser 640 x 480 600 x 300 800 x 600 760 x 420 1024 x 768 955 x 600 N M Swygert

  8. Introduction to PhotoShop • Color Depth (Bit-Depth) • Color depth describes the maximum amount of colors an image can contain. Bit-Depth Colors 1 bit 2 8-bit 256 24-bit 16.7 million 32-bit 16.7 Million +256 Color Alpha Channel N M Swygert

  9. Introduction to PhotoShop • Digital Image Types: • Bitmaps • Vectors N M Swygert

  10. Introduction to PhotoShop • Bitmaps • Bitmap files map out or plot the image on a pixel-by-pixel basis. Computer displays are made up of a collection of individual points or dots, called pixels, organized in columns and rows (similar to a table or a grid) where each cell represents each pixel in the image. N M Swygert

  11. Introduction to PhotoShop • Vectors • Vector images do not plot images on a pixel-by-pixel basis. Instead, vector files contain a description of the image expressed mathematically. Essentially, the file tells the computer about the image and the computer draws it. N M Swygert

  12. Introduction to PhotoShop • Internet Image Standards • GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) • JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) • PNG (Portable Network Graphics Each of these formats is a bitmap file. Currently, browsers do not support the display of vector-based images without a plug-in. N M Swygert
